We come and eat here a lot, the food is always great and well priced. The staff are brilliant, they always try so hard to go the extra mile and the setting is beautiful, beer garden right by the canal and horses in the fields around

Came to the black boy on the 10 th June got out the car to smell a strong smell of suers! But hay ho we are there to have a meal ' once inside managed to get a table for 7 and then ordered was told one hour wait which was ok ,then when we ordered drinks I must say a muture lady dark hair was lovely and pleasant which looking at other staff needs to give them a few tips so quick serving and polite , I think she really enjoys her job and a credit to the black boy ,,the food came after one hour ,hot and very good , I will come back as all the family's meals were lovely .

Terrible service

We booked a table in advance, arrived ordered a drink and were shown to a table by one of the bar staff , after a chat with our friends and looking at the menus we went to the bar to order. When I told the lady at the bar the table number she said well you can’t sit there as, and she gave me two names like i should know the people, and they will be here later
I told her that we had been shown to the table by one of the barmen; she just said well you can’t sit there. The barman who had shown us to the table came over as did another female member of staff and they had a huge argument infront of us. It was embarrassing.
The guy told everyone in a loud voice that the two people who always sit in that sit were not coming and the first lady shouted back that there were over and over again. She asked us to move
In the end we refused to move, and were served our food. Which was good but the evening was ruined by the staff and their daft argument.

ive been many a time, but twice recently both times were lovely, cant beat the lasange.
ive never waited along time for food and they always make sure everything is just right its not average pub grub its got the homely touch.
My partner loves the Tribute and they were accommodating when i needed a bowl and spoon for my boy and ive never seen anyone look like they don't want to be there.

Really nice lunch for me and husband. Friendly bar staff. The chef made me a veggie version of the chinese curry on the menu which was delicious! Perhaps make a permanent veggie option? Much appreciated will visit again soon! :)
